Another Go At Graduating

Hour 1:             For students who face incredible challenges at home, sometimes dropout prevention plans aren’t enough. But teens who leave school can come back. How do districts recognize which at-risk students are serious about succeeding, and what are the best ways to bring out the strength they’ll need to finish? As part of KERA’s American Graduate Initiative, we’ll spend the hour with Bronson Lewis, who helps run the Lewisville Learning Center’s Night High School, and Kathy Goad, project director for the WINGS dropout recovery program in DeSoto ISD.
